Woah... I was born in '94. 😁
Started coding in college 4 years ago, dropped out, started coding for money 3 years ago, and now I'm a Developer Advocate. So I basically talk about coding... for money. 😐

 

That's so interesting--how did you land that job?

Yes, it is! I thought about doing dev-advocacy too, but I don't even know where to start :D

How did you land that job?

Well, to be honest, it was a 2 year journey. I started writing about coding and built up a following on Medium. This was followed by actively contributing to my local dev community and teaching programming courses. I started speaking at Meetups on a regular basis, ultimately organizing and hosting them myself.

All of this contributed to technical knowledge, writing prowess and people skills, which are crucial if you want to be a Developer Advocate.
